the merits of the way he trains. ill he' say in the training environment, the reason it's not a public video when you're doing any kind of training it evokes a lot of emotions to people and in this case to diversity. at usda a big part of the work they're doing is working with migrant workers and populations in fact broadly minority and i think that that's important that exists. there's a reason by the way, fortune 500 companies invest in this training because it does impact the way a workplace environment works, there's data to support that. spending in in area is important giving the work they do. we can question his training style and what worked and didn't for you, but i think the value of it is inherent in the data that does exist out there. >> the business we should make them say-- referring it pilgrims as illegal aliens, illegal immigrants, get some pushback and people want them referred to as undocumented workers. it's interesting to see that federal taxpayers effectively taking a side by saying, you if you use the term illegal alien, it's racist, it's got, you know, it's completely
. in that kind of environment, you may be better off trying to grow through acquisition than you are organically. so i think we're going to see more of this. i think it is good for sentiment as you point out. i don't know that it triggers a new wave of overall optimism, but i think it is a good support for the market. >> what do you think of the buffett heinz deal? the price, you know, does it matter? i mean, he's paying up a bit. does that matter for him? >> it doesn't really matter for him. you know, this is classical buffett. he's buying a great brand, good cash flow, growth opportunity and he is the classical long-term investor. so for him to absorb a little bit of a premium to get the kind of property that he wants is not an issue at all. this is classical buffett. he's sitting on a lot of cash. he says he's really to reload and do it again if he can find a good property. he'll absorb whatever ream yumm he's paid over time and it will be a good day. >> and he was upping his stakes in directv, american express and is gm, interestingly enough. gm has got a -- they've got a european division t

be a virtuous cycle, it saves tax dollars, improves the environment, reduces the damage from flooding, and all the attendant costs. it's a class eck example of what the federal government should learn from 200 years of experience trying to engineer the mississippi river and instead allowing some cases nature to take its course and avoid more expensive and worse damage. and this is what we need to do across the federal government. we don't have to spend twice as much money on health care as most of the developed countries for outcomes that are mediocre at best. we don't have to spend more money on defense than 12 or 13 of the remaining largest defense budgets, and on weapons that in many cases like our nuclear arsenal, but we have far more than we need and can ever use and can afford. we can pare that down, save tens of millions of dollars and still be the most powerful nation in the world. for the outrageous crop insurance that encourages reckless and expensive behavior by paying farmers to plant crops on land that never should have been cultivated in the first place. while we will control spe
at the moment? because business gets on and deals with whatever the environment is. >> yeah. i think, you know, it's -- these are currents that go through the world economy. and we've had fears of currency wars recurrently over the last couple of years. i mean, the real problem is, again, going back to this lack of confidence. you know, economies don't run on money. they run on confidence. on the assumption that basically, you know, that conditions will improve, that governments will put into place collectively or individually measures which permit that kind of improvement. and there hasn't been much sign of that over the last year. and i think the changes in governments, the elections and so forth in the u.s., in china and so forth, you know, have in a sense have had an effect on that. everyone waiting to see what's going to happen. i really fear now that there are beginning to be -- i really hear now that there are beginning to be positive accelerators of confidence and, therefore, business activity. we're seeing it in some of the economic regions in asia, for instance. very -- recovery whic
is greatly broadly enabling environment, and have a portfolio approach in investments, in research and development. i think the are a number of things that come setting aside the right technology, i think there's a number of things that are attractive about the idea of making it easier for entrepreneurs to start their own businesses. >> i think that plays to a core strength. so anything that we can reduce the time and cost with developing new products and reducing the capital requirements i think is going to be a win for the training. >> one thing that you mentioned was materials. this may be lower on your list. last week, europe just announced they were funding to the tune of 1 billion euros in research into crafting. if you haven't heard about it, it's worth looking at. it's the carbon structure that is stronger than steel and more productive than copper and has lots of bendable, lots of very intuitive and industrial applications in your phone, and computers and things like that. and so we've just seen europe collectively make a big bet on research into wrangling with it and try
